Review quote

"Bookless and Deeptown return with this lively follow-up to Captain Green and the Plastic Scene (2018), starring the same environment-loving protagonist. . . . A spread of backmatter includes concept amplification and reasonable suggestions for helping save forests. A child-friendly environmental message with an emphasis on teamwork." --Kirkus Reviews

About Evelyn Bookless

Evelyn Bookless grew up on a farm in the west of Ireland where she loved to make forts and play in the trees with her siblings. She is a nature lover, mum, teacher and writer. Evelyn spent 10 wonderful years living in Asia but was saddened to see beautiful rainforests cut down during her travels around the region. She recently moved to the Netherlands, where she enjoys riding Betty, her blue bike. Her favourite place to be is in the ocean, preferably somewhere warm, as she's not as tough as she used to be. Her first picture book, Captain Green and the Plastic Scene, also illustrated by Danny Deeptown, won a Northern Lights Book Award for Children's Environmental Fiction.

Being obsessed with wildlife from a young age, Danny Deeptown found his love of drawing through hours of copying scientific illustrations from books of animals and dinosaurs. His artistic talent later led him to study Illustration in South Wales, UK. It was here he found a love for classic book illustration and the use of pen and ink. Today, Danny creates art for children and adults alike. He has illustrated numerous books that mostly involve characterised animals. When not in his studio, Danny likes to spend his time adventuring and seeking out new places in nature that are relatively remote. He is happiest in a secret place surrounded by trees with passing water.
